In nearly 200 trips Afoot & Afield Portland/Vancouver covers every hike within a one-hour drive of this metropolitan area. Outdoor enthusiasts in the Portland/Vancouver metropolitan area can hit the trail through dense old-growth forests, walk beside spectacular waterfalls, climb to viewpoints above massive glaciers, explore wetlands and meadows, or wander through the quiet forests of a 5000-acre park in metro Portland itself. The hikes range from simple strolls through urban preserves to rugged climbs in the Columbia River Gorge and on glacier-clad Mt. Hood. Hikes that are great in cloudy weather are clearly labeled, and each hike is shown on an up-to-date map. Each hike includes at-a-glance essential information — distance, time, elevation change, and difficulty rating. Dozens of these routes have never been covered in a guidebook before.
